That’s what ‘For All Cases Stefanie’ star does today

Yes, I wanted to get out of there. I had two small children whom I hardly ever saw. My working day sometimes lasted 12 to 16 hours, so there was little time for them. I had a chronic bad conscience. Also, as an actress, I didn’t always want to play the same role back then. At the beginning of the series, I thought it would only last a short time and then it would be over. But it wasn’t like that. However, I often have doubts about whether I always made the right decisions, but I can at least say that I had time with my children and raised them.

Many years have now passed. Your children are grown. The lack of time is no longer the problem, but rather the proposed role?

Yes! I would really like to be able to receive more offers and to be able to make good films. My old theater teacher used to tell me, “Ten percent is talent, the rest is hard work and luck.” In fact, luck is what you need in this job. I’m an actress through and through and I really miss being in front of the camera. But I am also accepting it if no request comes. For why should I suffer? It means nothing to my life. However, I do not lose hope. Sometimes my inner voice tells me that as a grandmother, I’m really going to start over.

What roles would you like to have?

I’m not exactly the comedian. I prefer drama or something socially critical. It’s mine. But for us women in particular, the older we get, the harder it is to find good roles.

Keyword aging: On July 29, you will be 60 years old. How does that make you feel?

I’m going to break a sound barrier there. Age is a problem for me. I have a problem with aging. I often think that everyone is totally on board with the topic and that it’s just me who has a problem. But this is nonsense. I think a lot of people think that getting old is not that easy for them. It is a process and my desire is to accept what is. Also with the aging body. But it’s not something that is served to me on a plate, I have to work on myself for that.
